I stopped at home between things today.  Kate is home sick.  Al said that Kate had News, so I should talk to her.

"It's about Honor Band!  Did she get in?"  He told me to talk to her.

I burst into her room.  "Kate!  What's your news?  Is it about Honor Band?  Did you get in?"

She nodded.  "I got into Cap Section."

I said, "Yay!...What about Josh, did you hear about Josh?  Did he get in?"

"Yeah, he got in to."

I shrieked with delight.

"Wow, Mom."

Oops.  Bad mommy.  Horrible mommy.

"I didn't mean it that way!  I just expected you to get into Cap Section Honor Band because you're so awesome!  I didn't know if Josh would make it in or not!"

Sigh.  She was mildly amused in that cynical teenaged way.  I think.  I hope.  And not having her fragile spirit crushed like a bug.
